You have submitted a sample of a Pedigree-brand dog food bag. The item measures 17”W x 38”H. You state that it is composed of three layers: a core of woven polypropylene, an inside laminate of polypropylene, and an outside laminate of oriented polypropylene. The bag weighs approximately 180 grams.

The applicable subheading for the dog food bag will be 6305.33.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sacks and bags, of a kind used for the packing of goods: Of man-made textile materials: Other, of polyethylene or polypropylene strip or the like, other. The general rate of duty will be 8.5 percent ad valorem in 2003 and 8.4 percent ad valorem in 2004.

The other three bags are shopping bags (the “ 7 Wonders”, the black bag, and the rainbow-colored bag) are open and feature carrying straps. The items are also constructed of the woven Polypropylene yarn that is covered on both sides with a plastic covered paper.
